Recreational drugs are drugs which are taken for pleasure, rather than for a medical purpose. Some drugs are sometimes prescribed by doctors for a medical reason and are also taken without prescription by other people because they like the effect it has on them. This category covers sites about the recreational use of drugs. Health: Pharmacy: Drugs and Medications lists sites about drugs, medications, and herbal health products taken for medical reasons.
This category is ONLY for sites that don''t fit into any of the listed subcategories. Thus, check the subcategories first before submitting here.

Submitting sites that sell drugs here will only delay the time that they are reviewed.

Dissociatives is short for dissociative anaesthetics. The dissociatives are one of the major classes of psychedelic drugs. Therapeutically, they act as anaesthetics by essentially disconnecting the brain for the body and sensation. At subtherapeutic doses, these drugs are psychedelics, and often powerfully so. The 3 dissociatives that are currently used recreationally are DXM (dextromethorphan), ketamine, and PCP.
This category is ONLY for sites about the recreational use of dissociatives as a whole. If your site is about a specific dissociative, then submit it to the appropriate subcategory.
Entheogens: Substances which generate god or spirit within. Peyote or psilocybin mushrooms are traditional examples of this. However, entheogenic use can involve the use of various other psychedelics and psychoactives, such as ketamine, dextromethorphan, DMT, and even non-psychedelic drugs if used in a religious or spiritual context. Entheogens are not a category of drugs per se, but more a method of using them.
